Mini-Series Explores US History Under the Influence of Beer and Whiskey

According to Discovery’s new mini series How Booze Built America, the pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock not because they planned to (they were sailing for Virgina) but because they ran out of beer.  Had I known this in high school, I probably would have paid much more attention in history class. Starting Wednesday, September 19th […]

Green Flash Double Stout: A “Refreshing” Stout For Summer

So I was going through my dwindling collection of beers the other day, and was reminded that I had some Green Flash brews that I haven’t tried yet.  I remember when I last posted about Green Flash I had drank their West Coast IPA and it was a really easy drinking IPA that went well […]

What’s Your Favorite Lawn Mower Beer?

Well summer is fully upon us and most of us spend at least some time in the sweltering heat mowing our yards.  I know I have, however it has gotten a lot easier this year with the addition of my Father’s old Cub Cadet riding mower.  Yes, we were mowing and caring for 2.5 acres with a […]

Squatter’s Outer Darkness: A Beer to Break the Summer Doldrums

I don’t know about you, but for me Summer is beginning to D…r…….a….gggggg. Yes, there is only so many sunny warm days an unemployed guy can take.  Seriously it has been so hot here nobody goes outside, the house has that artificially cool feel to it, and every time I do step outside it is […]

Glad I’m Not A Hipster, Because Pabst Blue Ribbon Sucks!

Jim and I have discussed our family history with PBR, and I have even discussed PBR’s recent history on the blog here.  Jim and my history with this beer began when we were children.  Our aunt worked for Pabst for a long time (almost 20 years) and it was my father’s beer of choice for […]

Bulleit Rye: More Rye Means More Better!

About 2 years ago the makers of Bulleit Bourbon came out with thier version of Rye.  About six months after that I picked up a bottle of said Rye, and put it in my bunker.  There it sat all lonely for these last 18 months.  I guess in some respects it kind of scared me […]

Blanton’s the Original Single Barrel Bourbon, A Nice Change of Pace

It is hard to believe, I’ve been doing this blog for almost 3 years now, and drinking small batch bourbon for many years before that, but I have never had a Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon…until now.  This one has always slipped through the proverbial cracks in the pavement with me.  I’ve seen it at the store, on […]

What are people talking about on Twitter? Church or Beer?

Saw this circulating last week on Facebook and thought it was interesting. My county has as many church tweets as it does beer tweets. I’m taking credit for most of the beer tweets! How about you? Are you more churchy or beery?

Good Beers, Bad Beers, You Know I’ve Had My Share…

I’ve been into craft beer for several years now, and in that time I have been treated to many seasonal releases, industry shifts, and trends that I now know to be cyclical.  I’ve also witnessed breweries getting craftier in that same time frame.  Not only are they getting better at coming up with great, wonderful, […]

Privacy-Invading Website Shows Just How Popular Hangovers Are

My buddy and fledgling pro-brewer Bill Bennett just shared this scary bit of business on Facebook.  It’s a “social networking privacy experiment” called We Know What You’re Doing .com which collects unflattering public Facebook status updates and posts them to their site. There are four categories on the site: Who wants to get fired? (people […]

New Belgium Tart Lychee: Beauty Is More Than Bottle Deep

A couple of years ago Jim and I went to a Rare Beer tasting in Denver, as part of our trek we made to GABF in 2010.  A pilgrimage we will surely need to make again…soon.  The Pints for Prostates Rare Beer Tasting at the Wyncoop Brewery was by far the best event of our trip, […]
